Lennon's Beatles Lyrics Go Up For Auction
JOHN LENNON's handwritten lyrics for the BEATLES song A DAY IN THE LIFE are expected to sell for as much as $700,000 (GBP437,000) when they go under the hammer in New York in June (10).
The lyrics appear on a double-sided sheet of paper, which includes corrections and amendments made in red ink.
A Day in the Life is the final track on the band's 1967 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album and recently came 26th in Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 greatest songs of all time poll.
Lennon's writings aren't expected to break the record for Beatles lyrics, set by All You Need Is Love, which fetched $1 million (GBP625,000) in 2005.
